I've just subscribed to alt.test and posted a message there,
using NewsHound, to port 8119. So: It Works For Me (TM).
I can't post to port 119, but when I try I get a different
error message: "You are not allowed to post to..." I looked
at this last night, and I can see why it fails, but that may
or may not help you. If I understand correctly, nobody can
post to eternal september port 119 using NewsHound because of
I've tried deliberately giving a wrong passord; this results
in not even being able to read news, so it confirms that I'm
using valid credentials.
Sorry, not much help.
